  • We discovered this museum by chance many years ago when we had only a little one. We loved the museum, the little one had fun in the interactive space and the museum is on our wishlist ever since. Thi...  more »
  • According to the places of mass tourism, this museum is a place of peace and education. For us, the admission was free, because we were already in Girona at the archaeological museum. Has not bothered me also, that the labels only in Catalan, Latin and Italian I can, were what was most understandable and also the audio guide in English is a nice guide. I am not in favour of national pride, but understand the message behind the labels: desire for creation/strengthening cultural identity. The movie is ridiculous. Determine selected of any superfluous museum educators. There are many featured exhibits geometric vases. It is only a pity that in the nicely decorated room with vases and a reconstruction of the ship the respective back of the figurative vases is not to see. At the Kestner Museum in Hanover, Germany, it has been simply a mirror behind the vase. Apparently it is not yet here on this very simple solution. It is also just a pity that you can see not obverse and reverse of coins, while this museum should afford the relevant cases. At the end of the tour is a funny life-size Priapfigur without a head.

  • This was a lovely museum with many exhibits. It was totally deserted when we arrived on a Saturday morning. The staff was friendly and the museum is quite extensive.  more »

  • No informacion in anglish, only spanis and catalan, but interesting
  • Incredibly beautiful building. I didn't even get inside to view its collection since it was closed and I'm still awestruck by it
  • There are many interesting artefacts about the history of the local community
  • This museum is one of the best I've been to, the description wasn't always in English so that may be a struggle to some tourists. Staff was really friendly and the toilets were very clean. Big collection to discover, great timeline and eye to detail like the maquettes of the buildings and the flickering light behind the oil lamp (most of the times I hear people wondering about what this is) Great job!
  • It is a beautiful building and the colections are displayed well. They also did a good job with the videos and the interactive areas. I learned a lot.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
